Why Is My AC Not Blowing Out Any Air?

Thursday, August 20th, 2020

Spinning-fan-closeupThere are different ways an air conditioning system can stop working. Sometimes the blower will turn on and send air to the room vents, but that air won’t be cool. Or the AC could keep shutting off after only running for a few minutes. But the most alarming problem for a homeowner—because it’s so immediately clear there’s trouble—is when the AC won’t blow out any air at all. Nothing comes out of the room vents, hot, cold, or otherwise.

What’s behind the “no blow air conditioner”? It could be a variety of malfunctions or errors. We’ll look into some possibilities below to help you understand when to call us for air conditioning repair in Fresno, CA or elsewhere in the Central Valley.

Why Does an Air Conditioner Short-Cycle?

Monday, June 15th, 2020

compressor-in-ac-unitOne of the most common signs of something wrong with a central air conditioning system is short-cycling. This is when an air conditioner fails to complete a full cooling cycle and instead shuts down early, only to turn back on again a short time later. Short-cycling is bad news for a few reasons:

  • It wastes power, resulting in higher utility bills
  • It puts extra strain on the AC, leading to an early replacement
  • It doesn’t give the system enough time to spread cool air evenly around the house

Under normal circumstances, you can expect your home’s air conditioning system to run for 15 minutes or more before it cycles down. If you notice that it’s running for shorter times than this and you hear it turn on multiple times in an hour, you should look into it. Sometimes short-cycling is a simple issue to correct. But in many cases, you’ll need to call technicians to diagnose what’s happening and then handle the necessary air conditioning repair in Fresno, CA.
